Smooth Jazz, Warm
Jazz in the Garden6
Why locals love it
Locals love it because it's a great place to spend Friday evenings enjoying the weather while listening to a variety local jazz musicians. The café serves a few options food, wine and beer, but you can also pack your picnic basket and bring your own food and drink.
Why you should visit it
If you're in DC between May-September, this is a great way to enjoy some free jazz music in a casual and fun atmosphere. It's a laid-back event to attend after a full-day of sightseeing where you have the option of sitting and chatting or even bringing a book while you listen.
Arriving early is the key to getting a good spot by the fountain because the sculpture garden fills up surprisingly quickly!
